Grayson & Whitter-Ommie Wise


Published October 18, 1927


Recorded on October 18, 1927 in Atlanta, Georgia. G.B. Grayson on fiddle and vocals. Harry Smith, editor of "The Anthology of American Folk Music," summarized "Ommie Wise" with this headline: "Greedy girl goes to Adams Spring with liar; lives just long enough to regret it." This tune is apparently based on the real life drowning of the pregnant Naomi Wise in North Carolina in 1808.
